A century-old company

For over 125 years, the Art de Lys Company has created, woven and manufactured collections of upmarket, jacquard patterns for decorating present day and future interiors. The workshops are located at Lys-Lez-Lannoy, in the heart of the historical textile area in northern France.

Tissage Art de Lys is the guarantee of exceptional expertise inherited from the Middle Ages and unanimously acclaimed in France and abroad. In particular, this expertise has enabled Tissage Art de Lys to be certified as an “Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant” (Living Heritage Company).

Created in 1890 by Jean Deffrennes-Canet and Edouard Catrice, the company started life as a workshop specialising in the manufacture of tapestries, rugs, velvet rugs and prayer mats. In 1983, it became Tissage Art de Lys, and began concentrating on decorative tapestries.

Today, the Tissage Art de Lys Company offers upmarket, decorative textile accessories (cushions, draught excluders, cosmetic bags, bell-pulls, bed and table runners, etc.), blending tradition and modernity.

Quality materials and made in France production

The Tissage Art de Lys workshops consolidate the entire production chain, from designing the patterns to the finished product via weaving, thereby guaranteeing 100% French manufacture.

Choosing quality raw materials also contributes to the company’s demands, as it selects suppliers who share the same values of refinement, excellence and quality. The threads are dyed by a textile company in the North of France.

Unique expertise

In 2013, the Tissage Art de Lys Company was awarded the EPV label (Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant). The EPV label is allocated for five years by the Ministry for Economy, Industry and Employment, and is the single State award associated with recognising exceptional expertise.
